Executive Summary

Green computing, an emerging field of research that seeks to reduce excess power consumption in High Performance Computing (HPC), is gaining popularity among researchers. Research in this field often relies on simulation or only uses a small cluster, typically 8 or 16 nodes, because of the lack of hardware support. In contrast, System G at Virginia Tech is a 2592 processor supercomputer equipped with power aware components suitable for large scale green computing research. DIRECT is a deterministic global optimization algorithm, implemented in the mathematical software package VTDIRECT95.
